The Flowers That Bloom In The Spring, Tra, La....

At last, I managed to join in with the 'Little Extra' at http://daringcardmakers.blogspot.com/ for the first time in quite a few weeks.

'Our midweek Little Extra is titled ‘The Flowers That Bloom In The Spring’ and we would like you to create a card with flowers.Simple? Aww but hold on…….there’s a little twist because we don’t want to make it too easy for you. We want your cards to have flowers on but we don’t want to see any Prima’s or shop brought blooms. The idea of this dare is for you create your flowers yourself, so let’s see what you can come up with.'

The paper is from the 'Enchanted' range from Craftwork Cards and has a beautiful shimmer and glitter. I hand drew and doodled the flowers, stems, leaves and birdie and added a few buttons.

The second card is for Sketch Challenge #4 at http://charmedcardsandcrafts.co.uk/ and I am much happier with this one! Papers are a mixture of BG and MM, I used TH Distress Crackle Paint on the large brown mat (doesn't show up too well in the photo), a MM grommet and buttons and ribbon from stash.

Buttons seem to be finding their way everywhere at the moment, but I love using them!Thanks for stopping by, Juliet xx
